A Siena College poll released Monday shows Bernie Sanders leading in the Empire State, ahead of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Overall, 25 percent said they would vote for Sanders in the primary, giving the Vermont Senator a four point lead over Bloomberg on 21 percent.

All other candidates finished far behind, with Joe Biden on 13 percent, Elizabeth Warren on 11 percent, and Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar on 9 percent each.

The poll found Sanders to have the highest favorability rating among Democrats in the state, tied with Elizabeth Warren at 58 percent. Bloomberg, Klobuchar and Buttigieg all had favorability ratings around 40 percent, while Biden had a 45 percent rating.

The survey of 315 registered Democratic voters was conducted between February 16 and 20, prior to Sanders’ landslide win in Nevada.
